Committee chairman Coun Ian Selby (Ind, Grantham Harrowby) said: “It is great to bring back the competition for its fourth year and looking forward to raising much needed funds for the nominated charities.”

Each year the cup raises money for charities and each team has chosen a charity to raise money for.

Sleaford Town FC has chosen Rainbow Stars, Grantham Town FC has chosen the Grantham Disabled Children’s Society, Harrowby United has chosen the Grantham Autistic Information Network and Deeping Rangers has chosen Dementia Support South Lincs.

On July 13, the two semi-finals will see Deeping Rangers versus Grantham Town FC at the Haydon Whitham Stadium in Market Deeping and Harrowby United versus Sleaford Town at the JRL Brickwork Stadium in Grantham.
